LGBT people have much to be proud of and few people appreciate that more than lesbian photographer B. Proud. Her stunning coffee-table book First Comes Love (Soleil Book, 2014), a collection of photos and corresponding essays, celebrates the enduring relationships of 60 same-gender couples who have been together between 10 and nearly 60 years. The cross-section of subjects, ranges from familiar faces such as the Prop 8 plaintiffs and the widow Edie Windsor, Houston Mayor Annise Parker and her spouse Kathy, as well as the late Barbara Gittings and her widow Kay Lahusen, to couples many readers will be meeting for the first time, all of whom will make lasting impressions. First Comes Love is the perfect gift for everyone, coupled or single, on your winter holidays list. If you are in NYC on December 19, Bureau of General Services Queer Division, located in The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, 208 West 13th Street, is hosting a book launch for First Comes Love.
Easily the most talked about new series of the fall 2014 season, Transparent (available through Amazon Prime) is, in a word, triumphant. Series creator Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight, Six Feet Under, and The United States of Tara) has created a show that transcends labels, effortlessly blurring the lines between comedy and drama. The story of Mort (Jeffrey Tambor), a divorced father of three who is in the process of transitioning from male to female, from Mort to Maura, Transparent stars one of the most inspired and brilliant ensemble casts in recent memory, including Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass and Gaby Hoffman, as Maura’s adult children.
